What’s your thing with kids?

Working with them

Living with them

Raising a sporty one


Hi, I’m Rachel Doherty, the founder of Tweens2teen

If you live or work with young people, then you’ll find plenty of great resources here to give you a hand.

The world is changing so quickly that the old ways of doing things don’t always work. We need to be savvy, giving kids the space to develop new ways of thinking and clever ways of doing life as they journey towards the grown up version of themselves.

Thanks for stopping by!

In 2018 I’m working on simplifying my life. I don’t know about you, but the juggle of working and caring for my family can sometimes get overwhelming. I’m looking to slow things down, savour the good times and build a bit of margin into my life.

Early this year I cared for my mum as she walked through her last day. When life is busy you can forget how much of a treasure each day is. Those precious moments with my mum showed me that I shouldn’t put off looking after myself, or doing the things that give me joy too. Tweens2teen is one of those things that make life good for me. I love writing and sharing what I’ve learned from 20+ years of being a social worker and parent.

So if you’re finding your life with young people a struggle at the moment, I hope you’ll find some of what I write helpful too!
